Using HST to Scaffold Student-driven Scientific Inquiry

Grades: Undergraduate


Using the Hubble Deep Field, we have developed an innovative strategy that carefully scaffolds undergraduate non-science majoring students' learning of scientific inquiry. Students are guided through four different inquiry experiences using HST data and progressively given more and more responsibility. At the end of the lesson, students generate their own scientific research questions and use HST data to conduct a scientific investigation.
